Today I received rough news. My Dad now has a large brain tumor on the right side of his brain. I spent close to 2 weeks with him in early January in California , we spent some great days together. I am struggling at the moment with the news. However, I have placed this all in Gods hands. As my earthly father and heavenly father would like it. As my Dad says, "Its thy will and not my will".
I will write more about my trip when I feel the words come to me. I dont really feel it in me at the moment.

Sorry to hear that news. We have to keep faith that God has made plans that we don't always (rarely!) understand but still must place our trust in Him, no matter how difficult. Prayers are with you and your family.

MIKE! My heart hurts for you and I am crying. I am so sorry to hear this. So very sorry. I wish I had some consoling words. How wonderful that you were able to spend time with him this month. And what a great picture.

I'm here if you need to talk.

Life hurts.

I am so sorry. I will keep both your dad and you in my prayers. He is such a positive, loving man and has a treasure in you. Your time together in CA was a gift and I am so glad you were both able to share that together. Your dad is right about the journey. We never know what will cross our path as we're traveling, but what an adventure it is!

Loving thoughts with you both...

Dear Mike..
Dick & I are so happy that you spent some quality time with your dad. The picture is great!

We always hope; and in all things it is better to hope than to despair. When we return to real trust in God, there will no longer
be room in our soul for fear.

Our prayers are with you during this time & always.

Uncle Dick & Aunt Mary
